Nobody thinks it is Godzilla?

I think after the last Godzilla movie (Godzilla: Final Wars) they said that they would be taking a 10 year break from the films.

I didn't think the Blair Witch Project was really all that great.  Hopefully this one is decent.

I'm certainly pumped- I re-read Book 6 last week and since Sunday I've re-read Books 2&3 and am now a quarter through Book 4 and will hopefully finish that one before getting seven.  I'd really love to re-read OotP (my favorite so far) before Deathly Hallows but I just don't think I could keep from being spoiled in the time it takes to read that monster. 

Do you understand the concept of numbers and how they have a natural order?    slywink

I just got The Darkness from my new GameFly subscription and so far I'm liking it.  I'm looking forward to getting some more Darkness powers.

The previews I've seen make it seem pretty cheesey, but it might be decent.

Yes, you need a Live Gold account to play online, but you can download all the free demos, movies, Arcade demos, etc with a free Silver account.  No need to buy a Gold account until you've purchased a game you really want to play online.

9088  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue coming in October of this year on: July 18, 2007, 07:22:50 AM
The video I saw of this certainly makes it look amazing.  Way better than Forza 2 in my opinion.  Of course the lack of any damage is a big minus.

One thing: if this is "Prologue", does that mean the real game is coming out later or something?  Or did they decide to go the massive download direction where you buy the core game and download extra cars and levels as you want?

Hell yeah!  And I would also like to see a new Bionic Commando.

9091  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So, What are your most anticipated games for the rest of 2007? on: July 18, 2007, 12:31:53 AM
My top picks:
Mercenaries 2
GTA IV

Halo 3
Half-Life Ep 2/TF2
Stranglehold

When I get time/money list:
Assassinís Creed
Project Gotham Racing 4 (the bikes make it less appealing to me)
Beautiful Katamari
Mario Galaxy
Smash Brothers
Bioshock

The last actual full computer that I bought came with DOS and Windows 3.11.  I think that was about 13 years, four operating systems and many parts ago. 
9095  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft's 360 redesign - code-named Falcon on: July 10, 2007, 01:52:57 PM
Mike, I wouldn't expect them to send you a brand new model.  They'll most likely just send you a refurbished one of the older style if they can't fix yours.  Then you have to deal with all that time of sending it back and waiting and talking to morons on the phone...not worth it.

Sadly, not much backlog here as I have few games for the pc since my pc is el crappo and no upgrade for years and years I suspect.  About all I have unfinished at this time is Dark Messiah, and that barely runs, even on low settings.   But I will wade through it just to see what happens but not sure how much fun it will be looking at all that blurred textures and low frame rate.

FWIW, an enhanced port of Dark Messiah is coming to the 360 this fall. 

Actually it's not slated to hit until early next year, and I'd be surprised if it gets much attention then unless it has some major enhancements. 
9098  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Forza 2 vs PGR 3 on: July 09, 2007, 02:06:41 AM
I hope you enjoy Forza 2!  There are a lot of good points to it, but just don't expect it to blow you away visually.  The full game is certainly more entertaining than the demo, but it didn't hold my interest for the long term. 
9099  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Gaming Pet Peeve] Final levels that ratchet up the difficulty on: July 09, 2007, 01:56:03 AM
Yeah, the Psychonauts Meat Circus was painful for such a wonderful game. 

I also thought that General RAAM at the end of Gears of War was by far the most difficult and infuriating thing in that game.  Several times I was close to throwing my controller. 
9100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Monkey Ball (Wii)? on: July 09, 2007, 01:51:30 AM
I haven't actually played the Wii version of Monkey Ball, but from what I've heard, if all you're looking for is the marble rolling stuff you might be better off with Kororinpa: Marble Mania, which you can get for $40 new.  It doesn't have the minigames and such of the Monkey Ball series, though, if that's important. 
9101  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Forza 2 vs PGR 3 on: July 08, 2007, 12:22:39 PM
First off, welcome to the club and I hope you enjoy your new console!  I have both Forza 2 and Project Gotham Racing 3(as well as DiRT) and I can say that each of them does their own thing very well, it just depends on what you are looking for. 

If you want a career-oriented game similar to the Gran Tourismo series where you are buying, upgrading and customizing tons of cars from different classes and doing pretty realistic racing then Forza 2 is what you want.  Lots of depth and things to do, but the tracks wore a bit thin after a while.  Good online support with stuff like the auction house.

PGR3, like the previous PGR games, is a bit less realistic and based more around gaining kudos and racing style rather than just perfect racing lines.  You aren't going to be upgrading your cars and you won't find the more run of the mill cars like a Corolla or Focus anywhere in there like Forza 2 has, but there is a pretty good variety of high-end sports cars.  There are some decent online features also, considering it was a launch title.  This one is also available for half price these days (or cheaper used), so that might make it worth a second look. 

If you like rally and off-road racing like I do, then I don't think you can go wrong with DiRT.  The only big downside is that the multiplayer is limited to each player running a time trial stage and comparing the results (although up to 100 people can compete at once). 

There are demos available for Forza 2, DiRT, Burnout Revenge and tons of other games for free download on the Marketplace, so if you have a broadband connection I would definitely get that hooked up and try some of them out.
9102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Insurgency mod for HL2 on: July 08, 2007, 07:47:27 AM
Yeah, I've had the same experience.  I'm not sure if it's a sniper or what but often I'm running and just get shot with seemingly one or two bullets and I'm dead without any idea who shot me from where.  That's no fun. 

I'm also not a fan of iron sights nor how they artificially slow down your aiming speed.  Just because I have the gun on my shoulder doesn't mean I can only turn around at 1/4 the speed. 

Not a lot of fun to me so far. 
9103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: After half a year of Vista, how many are on board? on: July 08, 2007, 07:36:33 AM
Well, I voted for the "Don't own it and won't", even though eventually I'm sure I will.  I fall into the category of "Don't own it and see no reason to buy it for the forseeable future". 
9104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 07/06/07 on: July 08, 2007, 07:33:57 AM
I played a little more DiRT.  I finished the career mode in Amateur mode and am retrying some races as Pro-Am. 

I'll probably pop in Ratatouille a bit more before I have to return it.  I was in the mood for a platformer last weekend and had just seen the movie so it seemed like a good fit.  Unfortunately is has some really infuriating jumping sequences that usually mean insta-death.  Not fun to do the same thing over and over 20 times only to fall to your death right before reaching the end.  It's not all bad, but some things could certainly be improved. 
9105  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shoot 'em Up movie on: July 08, 2007, 12:34:36 AM
Seems like it could be decent.  I do like Paul Giamatti.

I've never found Monica Belluci all that appealing, but each to their own. 
9106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Free Bungie Theme and Picture pack [360] today only on: July 07, 2007, 11:45:27 AM
I saw this over on the Bungie Weekly Update.  There is a new Theme and Picture pack from Bungie available for free in the Marketplace for Bungie Day (7/7/07) only.  I checked them out and it's probably not something I'll use but I can't argue with free. 
9107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 price drop? on: July 07, 2007, 12:57:06 AM
I'm not sure how you can say we don't know all that much about Halo 3 yet.  There have been numerous previews, screenshots, videos and a huge freaking multiplayer beta for people to get a real first impression of the game.  Killzone 2 has had one prerendered video that I know of.  That's the difference.

Looks like people trading in iPhone futures did get punk'd.

At least they were able to return them.

Too bad this lady can't return the $800 she paid to get to the front of the line.  D'oh!

Yeah, I saw a preview for this at Ratatouille.  It's live action with apparently real dogs.  Looks like crap.

Nah, it looks really good and I'm sure if I had a DS I'm sure I would get this.

9113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Ninja Gaiden Sigma - Why No Buzz? on: July 06, 2007, 10:10:42 AM
I hated the camera enough in the Ninja Gaiden demo that I never bothered to even try the full game or the Black re-release.  I have no sympathy for the shitty camera systems that are present in some action games, often Japanese ones. 
9114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 price drop? on: July 06, 2007, 10:07:00 AM
Nice to see a decent price drop, but I need to buy myself an HDTV before I even consider something like this.  Maybe next year when that has happened and it is hopefully even cheaper. 

My guess would be that Microsoft will drop the 360 by $100 before Christmas, but one never knows. 
9115  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The "depward loves games... but not completing them" Project on: July 06, 2007, 09:56:18 AM
I'm not so concerned about finishing games these days.  I like it when I do, but I just want to get my enjoyment out of it.  If I have played a game to the point where I have to force myself to put it in the XBox (or PC) I am probably done with it no matter how far I am in the story/career.

Yeah, it's very likely you are ahead of me now, Calvin.  I haven't played the game much in a couple weeks (accursed RSI) so I'm sure you've progressed since I last checked.  There goes my mini ego boost.   crybaby
I usually beat Calvin as well, but I want more people to beat! What's your gamertag?

My GamerTag is Engine Nine.  I will warn you that I don't play many multiplayer matches, but I like to compare times an such with my Friends list. 

The thing to consider with the DiRT time comparisons is that if you are quite a bit ahead of somebody else in the career mode you have most likely run the same course with a faster vehicle than they had so you will get a better time.  Until they run with new vehicles and make you look like a chump.  I wish you could sort times by vehicle or at least class. 
9118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/360] Rock Band on: July 05, 2007, 12:46:09 PM
